The Chennai residents could expect rains today in the afternoon or in the night and this could be due to the low pressure that has formed over the Bay of Bengal near the south TN coast.
In Chennai, the sky condition would be cloudy and some localities in Chennai would receive rains along with thunderstorms. This was as per the forecast made by the meteorological department.
It is learnt that there is still a low pressure area over Sri Lanka off Tamil Nadu coast with an associated cyclonic circulation extending up to 3.1km above mean sea level. This low pressure is likely to be there for another 2 to 3days and later move westwards. This was according to a weather report. The impact of the low pressure system was responsible for various localities in Chennai getting rains on Sunday. Maximum rains of 24mm were recorded at Ennore and 8mm of rain was recorded at Meenambakkam.
